Attack Aircraft Strength by Country (2021)



FIXED-WING | AIRPOWER

Ranking total dedicated attack aircraft strength by country, from highest to lowest.



The Global Firepower ranking tracks aircraft elements dedicated to ground strike sorties as an offshoot of the Fighter/Interceptor Aircraft listing. These aircraft are specifically designed to attack ground targets by way of broader support for various air-to-ground munitions (for this reason the list excludes multi-role platforms).

Examples of such types considered by the GFP ranking includes the Russian Sukhoi Su-24 'Fencer', the American Lockheed Martin F-35 'Lightning II', oversized dedicated bomber forms such as the Boeing B-52, light strike solutions such as the Brazilian EMB-314 'Super Tucano', and specialized loitering platforms such as the AC-130 'Spectre'.

Data presented on this list is through 2021. Estimates are made when official data is not available.
